2D environment 3D revisit

So awhile ago, I did this photoshop painting of a catacombs inspired by a trip to the Natural Bridge Caverns

Heres that cavern from awhile back in with some upgrades.  First, i laid out a few simple formations in 3dsMax  

Then it was over to maya to texture and light 

Finally, I rendered all of the formations in their own targa file so i could re-size and position them in the composition in Photoshop
A photo filter and some color adjustments later, we have a cold, wet catacombs.  yay ^^

3d character modeling demo reel

A couple of these models should be familiar, as it isnt their first time appearing on this blog, but I figured id upload this anyways since...yeah...demo reel and whatnot.

Fun with nostalgia

So heres an animation that my classmate Pamela Mills and I made.  I really enjoyed getting to work with Pam and she is such a supportive and positive individual that I am sure she is really going to thrive in this industry, if not anything else, because she is such a joy to work with.  I heart her face.  Srsly.

In other news, I finally gave DC Universe Online a shot....and its badass...Xocarr RAWR!!!

No, seriously...acrobat transport makes the entire Universe a jungle gym...its comic book immersion on a level of fun I thought Id left behind at the age of 12. I only regret that I dont have a computer capable of running it on max settings. ...soon,tho....soon...
